Washington, Nov 16 (EFE).- Elon Musk has said he would relaunch Twitter’s blue check subscription service on Nov.29, slightly delaying the return of the most sought-after add-on on the social media platform.
“Punting relaunch of Blue Verified to November 29th to make sure that it is rock solid,” Musk tweeted.
“With new release, changing your verified name will cause loss of checkmark until name is confirmed by Twitter to meet terms of service,” the Twitter owner said.
Twitter paused the $8 per month Blue subscription service on Friday after users were found impersonating brands and famous people.
The coveted service allowed users to pay for a verification check mark on their accounts.
Companies like Nintendo, pharma giant Eli Lilly, and Tesla, which Musk owns, saw how users with the blue verification check mark impersonated the firms until their accounts got suspended.
Last week, Musk said the blue check mark would “come back end of next week.”
The option to pay $8 a month for the verified account symbol came after Musk took over the social media company in a $44 billion deal. EFE
